My first blog give away EVER! And it’s a sweet one! Especially for all you Mom’s who have little ones with Nintendo DS hand held gaming consoles.

Moshi Monsters is a free online game for children where they adopt and look after their own Moshi Monster by solving puzzle games, which earn their monster virtual rewards called Rox. Kids can spend Rox on virtual items like food, furniture and other treats and toys for their monster. Over time their monster will increase in level, be able to visit new locations in Monstro City, and earn all kinds of in-game rewards for playing. Monster owners will also be able to make friends with other owners and leave messages on their pages.

Education is right at the heart of the Moshi Monsters experience. Every day your child’s monster will create a series of fun puzzles that test everything from vocabulary and arithmetic to logic and spatial skills. The better your child does at these puzzles, the more Rox they’ll earn to buy cool things for their monster. The difficulty level of the puzzles automatically calibrates each day, so puzzles get harder if they are doing well, and easier if they are struggling.

Successfully nurturing a Moshi Monster is no mean feat. It takes a variety of skills that your child can develop over time. Your child will need to think creatively, hypothesize, strategize, manage resources, collaborate with friends, and nurture a wide variety of other skills that could extend positively into their everyday lives.

The adopted monsters love words and communicate with their monster owners regularly via speech bubbles, to encourage reading. Their moods are visually represented and also expressed by a printed word in their virtual room. Since their moods can change regularly, your child has plenty of opportunity to learn new vocabulary. For instance, their monster might be feeling ‘jubilant’ one day, but ‘melancholy’ the next.

The game is now available for your DS too, a South African release date still pending. And if you were doingΒ  any shopping in your favorite toy stores over the last few months, you will have noticed that this is a rapidly increasing brand with toys now available too!
